The Flyers will close out there three game trip through California to start the season with their third game in four nights at the Anaheim Ducks. After beating the Sharks 5-3 on Wednesday night, the Flyers were shut out 2-0 by Jonathan Quick and the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday.
The Ducks fell behind 4-1 to the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday night, but they scored the final four goals of the night to pull off the 5-4 win. Their top line combined for four goals five assists in the comeback.
Anaheim is dealing with numerous injuries to key players. Centers Ryan Getzlaf and Ryan Kesler will not be in uniform tonight as well as defensemen Hampus Lindholm and Sami Vatanen. Despite the injuries, the Ducks scored five goals, but gave up 30 shots on goal in their opening night win.
